Chrome plating

Hard chrome is used as a hard top layer or wear layer as the coating has little friction.

The chrome layer has a structure with micro cracks, and if the coated area should be corrosion resistant, a coating of Everit-nickel should be put underneath the chrome layer

Properties of the chrome coating:


Hardness
1000 - 1150 HV

Tensile Strength
100 - 130 N/mm2

Elongation
0 %

Adhesion to steel
200 - 300 N/mm2

Coefficient of thermal expansion
6,6 * 10-6

Thickness of coating
0,01 - 0,30 mm

Melting point
1765 oC
